Detonate – March 22nd



My days its been a busy month! Playing out every weekend has been a lot of fun, and I’ve saved the best till last.

Catch me supporting this ridiculous lineup over at detonate on the 22nd. I’ll be in the room with Calibre, Dub-Phizix and Enei. Bosh!



Gig Updates

After a short bout of man-flu I’m back on my feet and feel a little more inspired to update. This ones a quick one on all the chances you’ll get to catch my sounds coming to you live.


First off, bloom!

This one’s a residents special and the last chance you’ll get to come down for a boogie till the cold-ass winter’s on its way out in March of next year. Put it in your diary; Friday 21st at the Shakespeare in Derby.

Set times to be confirmed but I’ll be on after 10, hopefully a little later towards prime time so I can get on a heavy 3 deck mix-up. Expect a retrospective look on all my fave deep/tech and neuro tracks this year.

Plus, the world will most likely end, and its free all night so no excuses.

Next up is Basstrap:

On the same night as bloom (due to unforeseen circumstances) I’ll be opening up for Annix from 9pm till 10 covering the lighter side of dnb.

Expect the best of this years liquid with a deep tip to get the party started.

£4 in all night.

No matter what your taste in dnb there’ll be something for you this friday 21st December on Sadler gate.

Finally, you can catch my last show this year on Livity FM from 7:30 pm (gmt) on Tuesday 18th December at: http://www.livityfmradio.com/

I’ll be on stream2, halfway down the homepage.

Tune in or come down, or both!

Bloom! Sept 21st @ The Shakespeare


That time of the month is almost upon us again to go and get out regular dose of beats down at bloom. This month is turning out to be somewhat of a Jungle fest with Theory and XTC gracing the decks. So get your dancing shoes on and make the most of what we have left of this miserable summer before its too damn cold to party in the beer garden!



Detonate – Autumn 2012 Lineup

Another fresh load of students are on their way to nottingham soon and with that, another year of Detonate. This ones set to be bigger than last year by a long shot! With a line-up like that set to shake the foundations of club stealth, there’ll be something for everyone!

Kicking things off this year theres a killer lineup that’ll be keeping us raving till the early hours on the 28th September:

What a way to get things started! If you look closely you’ll see your very own Howitzer is making his début performance at Detonate 😉

So get your tickets early to avoid dissapointment! http://www.detonate1.co.uk/event.php?eid=71769

Saturday 28th Jan – Spanky Van Dikes, 17 Goldsmith Street, Nottingham

I just spotted this naughty little gig as I was writing this article. Its been a while since Ive partied to some dnb at spankys.

I have fond memories of CULT when it used to be there, fucking sick place. Love the vibes, epic sound system, and with a lineup like this for freebies!

No question, im there.



Saturday 4th February – The Shakespere, Saddler gate, Derby

These guys have been busy over the past few months building up another solid night at the shakespere.

Mainly dubstep-centric you can expect a lot of deep, deep vibes from this place, shakespere is as always, a wicked venue for a party.




Friday 10th February – The Sunlounge, 15A Wardwick, Derby

Ahh the mighty Deckadance, THE staple underground derby dnb night since forever.

Whilst Mr Pablo is off galavanting in foreign lands for a few months, the reigns have fallen to Phil Hustle of the exceptional Hustle Audio.

I cant stress enough how wicked this night is gonna be; Cursa, Pessimist, Mr Hustle himself, Ed:it, Expect & Snaps.
